Review:
"Old fans and newcomers alike should delight in Hiaasen's eleventh novel, another hilarious Florida romp ›with an® engaging and diverse screwball cast . . . Hiaasen's humorous touches and his all-too-human characters carry the book to its satisfying close."
-"Publishers Weekly"

" Hiaasen's arch potboilers, pitched in the low latitudes of Florida and the lower strata of human evolution, revolve around a few solid observations about the species: in a fallen world, damaged people will sometimes do noble things; and heels will always be heels. Hiaasen's campfire voice, perpetually amused by the resourcefulness with which his characters reaffirm his opinion of human nature, provides a core of truthiness . . . [His] wasteland is as retributive as Cormac McCarthy' s, but funnier . . . Honey is a classic Woman in Jep, of the sort Hollywood seems to have abandoned . . . Hiaasen's pacing is impeccable, and the scenes follow one another like Lay's potato chips . . . I purred warmly through the novels' twists and further twists . . . An entertaining ride."
- John Leland, "New York Times Book Review"
" Hiaasen isn't just Florida's sharpest satirist- he's one of the few funny writers left in the whole country . . . I think of him as a national treasure [and] I have yet to be disappointed. "Nature Girl, "Hiaasen's latest, keeps his string going in fine fashion . . . Hiaasen is not just a good comic writer. He's just a good writer."
- Malcolm Jones, "Newsweek"
" Just sit back and watch as Carl Hiaasen, with his customary flourish, spins a glittering magic wheel and comes up with another set of characters only he could create . . . The book is an island romp."
- Carolyn See, "Washington Post Book World"
" When he's in good form, Hiaasen, like Elmore Leonard, shouldn't be missed. "Nature Girl "is one of his better efforts .. . As usual, Hiaasen throws his colorful characters into an increasingly frenetic mix, and the fun lies in watching how, or if, they'll manage to extricate themselves. One reason "Nature Girl "works so well is the fact that much of the action is confined to a single island, allowing the characters to intermingle and weave in and out of view."
- David Lazarus, "San Francisco Chronicle"
" Winter reading needn't be without comic hijinks . . . "Nature Girl "is a hilarious romp through the Everglades led by a bipolar divorced mom named Honey Santana, who cooks up a baroque plan to get back at a rude telephone solicitor."
- Jonathan Miles, "Men's Journal"
" As depicted by the deft pen of Carl Hiaasen, ecoterrorism is not only justified, it's hilarious . . . He's at it again in his distinctive, madcap style . . . [A] breakneck narrative."
- Clea Simon, "Boston Globe"
" Hilarious . . . A lifelong resident of the Sunshine State, [Hiaasen' s] novels have always addressed the state's ecological and social ills with scathing satire, ironic comeuppance and an ever-evolving sensibility . . . Everybody's airport-reading favorite flies high again."
- Dan Lopez, "Time Out New York"
" Zapped during dinner by a telemarketer peddling Florida ' ranchettes, ' Honey Santana doesn't just go postal, she devises a get-even scheme of demented brilliance . . . in the kind of Floridian follies on which Hiaasen owns the franchise . . . The writing is never less than amusing."
- Pam Lambert, "People"
" Using his trademark dry, wry humor, Hiaasen shows how bad behavior tears the fabric of society . . . "Nature Girl "is typical Hiaasen, with a brisk story overflowing with satire, wisecracks and the fear of what society is becoming. The cast is one of his most accessible . . The main characters are as real as your next-door neighbors- with a few quirks . . . Highly entertaining."
- Oline Cogdill, "South Florida Sun-Sentinel"
" Old fans and newcomers alike should delight in Hiaasen's eleventh novel, another hilarious Florida romp [with an] engaging and diverse screwball cast . . . Hiaasen's humorous touches and his all-too-human characters carry the book to its satisfying close."
